Raise your hand whoever here, at any stage in their lives, has looked as good as Kylie Minogue does right now at 50.

 

 

Yeah I fucking thought not.

Well that's not fair, she's had 24 years longer than me to get ready.

She'll probably edge it though judging from my dad (no offence Priest16)

The Killers are clearly headliner sized, will go down really well and probably deliver a solid headline set that sends most onlookers into the night really happy. 

As far as headlining a popular music festival goes, they’re still a safe and solid choice. 

The disappointment really is that for us on the forum they’re a boring choice and a bit naff. I won’t be watching but it’s an understandable mainstream choice in my opinion with what’s on offer and the Stormzy ‘risk’ they’ve taken with the mainstream rock lot.

The Cure played at my first Glasto. In 1986. Lloyd Cole played, and at the end of his set said ‘looks like rain’ or something. The Cure came on and it lashed it down for the rest of the night. Our tent blew away. We had to sleep in my Cortina. Good times. I don’t know why I quoted the message above. I think I maybe felt temporary affinity with the parents of lighthouse. 

Think I too must be at least old enough to be one of @lighthouse's parents. Also I can't name as many Zep songs off the top of my head as chatty's 7 year old.

Kylie is getting the biggest crowd of the weekend. 

Give over with the media whore shit. Dude can go naked and not be told he's a slut. Try to remember that women do make up some percentage of contribution to this forum. 

We desperately need an announcement or Simpsons posts cos these past few pages suck.

Yeah, but I do think The Cure has more overall known songs than Led Zep. I think my parents couldn't name a single Zep song (Well maybe 1), but would instantly recognize songs like A Forest, Just Like Heaven or Boys Don't Cry.

Does your mum know Stormzy though?

Men and women can be media whores.

It doesn't mean actual whores.

I am a woman.

I can't explain to people who won't listen so here's a link: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/media_whore

The Cure isn't really a jump and flail around kind of band. (Thank god!)

A Forest is always a huge, unbeatable live moment. Collective chills whenever that bass comes up. Personally I love the climax of From The End Of The Deep Green Sea or Disintegration. Immense. These epics are the exact opposite of dull.

Thanks! I enjoy importing setlists from setlist.fm to Spotify. Any particular Cure-list you can recommend?

It's still a loaded term to use in defence of the people weaponising a woman's sexual history as a means of attacking her husband.

No offence, Gnomi, but I read this at 6.15am when I was still in bed, and that is far too early to be thinking about anyones Gold Lamé  Thingy :lol: It did wake me up though tbf!

And whilst we're calling out the bullshit can the Kylie discussion move beyond phwoar/too old to phwoar.

Upvoted for the suggestion you're a 17th generation eFestser. The first forum was distributed on scroll by carrier pigeon.

Recon the lack of announcements is due to them scrambling to get a decent line up? Like from what we know it’s lack lustre and abit embarrassing to say there’s been 2 years and most of the big acts played 2017 on smaller stages 😂 

There's no "lack of announcements" the amount they've announced so far is consistent with most years recently.

Yet every year the impatience grows exponentially. With the current underwhelming prospect of The Killers as the last headliner I can now patiently wait for the non Pyramid line up to start appearing next month.

Whilst there does appear to be a dearth of interesting 'headliners' about this year, there are loads of decent acts around below that level. I have genuinely good feeling about the strength of the 'undercard' this year.

Yeah I'm pretty unhyped about the rumoured headliners this year (across most stages, although we've still got tons to come) but getting pretty excited about some of the possible undercard acts. Also hoping for some of those 'well I wasn't expecting that' acts to pop up on the lineup also - they're always fun.

This Killers buzz must be getting some serious traction - even Radio X mentioned it last night!*

I listen to it over 4g, about 40 minutes each way including quite a few rural miles and it doesn't drop out like it used to.

A good starting place, I'd suggest, is there set from Hyde Park last year. If you want it to be instantly accessible / recognisable, listen in reverse order.

Well technically there is a lack of announcements.... just not an unusual lack of announcements.
